    Hi there! I've jumped ship from the TA LV forum (for good) to join this merry band of Vegas fans. I'm a Cheesehead (early 40s) about to make my 8th journey to Vegas. This upcoming trip will be quite different from any of the first 7. I'll reveal this twist when posting my TR upon my return! (Sorry, no Live/Semi-live TR from me as I like to do Vegas "unplugged.")

    I've enjoyed reading the TRs, etc. as an "outsider" and I look forward to learning a lot more from--and contributing to--this great resource! Thanks!

    Welcome, I am also very new but have loved these boards so far.

    Have you done trip reports in the past? Links?

    Welcome to the board. I'm new to posting here, but been lurking for a while. It really is a great board.
    I have a trip in 4 weeks, and considering doing a TR myself, but it may bore people to death. It's my fantasy football draft weekend, and I doubt anyone would be too interested in that mess.

    There is no such thing as a bore. I post my trip reports exactly how I want to read them. Keep that in mind and you would be in the zone. Not everyone will like my reports and that is fine. I read almost all of them from start to finish though.

    Thank you, sybgal...This is a surprise trip for 3/5 of our party. The toughest part of keeping the secret is trying to contain my own excitement!
